Read full description of the books:
A jazz quartet. The cast of a stage play. A work team, a classroom discussion seminar, or a family, planning a summer vacation. In all of these groups, creativity and collaboration are essential. And perhaps the most creative collaborating groups are music and theatre ensembles. This title draws on studies of performing ensembles to provide insights into all group creativity. The author explores participants' close listening and sensitivity, the submerging of each ego in the group dynamic, and the ways that people work together to create something better than any single person could create alone.
